José Mourinho insists Leicester City will not do Manchester United a favour in the top four race

Leicester City will face Tottenham on Sunday, in a game that could have a major impact on their Champions League dreams.

If the Foxes lose to Tottenham, it would provide Manchester United with a rare opportunity to go fourth, since they’re only ahead on goal difference.

But Tottenham boss, José Mourinho, has insisted he doesn’t care about helping anyone qualify for top four, adding that only those deserving of a place in the competition will be in it.

The former United boss told reporters: “First of all, I’m not looking at that [top four] fight. I don’t know mathematically what’s possible for them, I think they play the last game between them, I don’t know if things can be decided there.

“I don’t know if Chelsea are in a safe position, I don’t think they are. I think they are still in this fight, and if Manchester United does it, they’ll do it by playing very well in the second part of the season.

“And when you play well, you deserve. And on top of that everybody knows they were a bit lucky more than one time. Lucky that others didn’t have. Us for example, didn’t have that luck.”

In the last paragraph, Mourinho was obviously making reference to the notion that United have received favourable decisions from VAR, which isn’t exactly accurate, seeing as we, like he said, have played well these past few months.

Meanwhile, we’re sure United aren’t looking to receive any favours from Tottenham in the race for Champions League football. If they beat Leicester City, it would be great, but we have to focus on winning our remaining matches, and leave the rest to take care of themselves.
